It boosts your immune system
Lemons are rich in vitamin C and potassium. Vitamin C is the ally against colds, and potassium stimulates the brain and nervous functions, adjusts blood pressure.
It balances your pH
You may find it hard to believe but the lemons are a strong alkaliniser. Yes, they are acid outside but inside our bodies they become alkaline (citric acid does not cause body acidity once it is metabolised), and, as you probably know, alkalinisation is really good for health.
It helps you lose weight
The lemons contain a lot of fibre and stop the craving. It has also been proven that the persons having rather an alkaline diet lose weight more easily. A day that starts correctly for the diet is easier to follow afterwards.
It helps digestion
Lukewarm water helps to stimulate the gastrointestinal tract and the muscles that contract the intestinal walls. The lemons and limes have a high mineral and vitamin content and this is why they contribute to toxin elimination from the digestive tract.
It is a natural diuretic
The lemon juice helps to eliminate unwanted substances from the body because lemons increase urination rate, therefore the toxins are eliminated more quickly and it thus contributes to the urinary system health.
It purifies the face
Vitamin C helps to reduce wrinkles and pimples. The lemon water cleanses the blood toxins, so it also cleanses the skin.
It hydrates your lymphatic system
The start-of-the-day glass of water offers the first hydration of the day. The dehydration is responsible for the body’s slow functioning, general tiredness and toxin accumulation, stress and constipation. The glands that secrete adrenaline are stimulated by the hydration and they create energy, release sodium and adjust the stress level.
Adopting this new habit can change your experience of starting the day for the better. Do not be surprised if you consider mornings more indulgently.
